Air Adventures AFF: Level 7

By adminon - Read 1494 times

GRADUATION DIVE


JUMP SEQUENCE:



  1. The JM will check the spot, then tell you to exit.

  2. When you are ready to exit, just dive out of the plane like Superman. Do not check in.

  3. Get stable as soon as possible after exit.

  4. Turn to find your JM. Track towards him when you find him.

  5. Follow your JM's hand signals. Remain close to him throughout the dive.

  6. When he signals you to turn, do a 360. Check your altitude after each manuever.

  7. When he signals you to track towards him, use forward motion to get closer to him.

  8. When he gives you the delta-track signal, track for five seconds.

  9. If he drops below you, arch harder to increase your fall rate.

  10. If he floats above you, arch a little less to decrease your fall rate.

  11. At 6000 feet, shake your head to indicate "no more manuevers." Your JM will not remind you if you forget.

  12. Turn 180 away from your JM and track for five seconds, then stop.

  13. Wave off and pull at 4000 feet. Note the new altitude. Check above you as you wave.

  14. Count to five and check your parachute.


PERFORMANCE STANDARDS:



  • Remain stable 100% of the time after exit

  • Demonstrate tracking, fall rate control, and tracking skills

  • Demonstrate altitude awareness despite distractions.

  • Perform breakoff procedure at 6000 feet.

  • Stable solo waveoff and pull at a lower altitude (4000 feet, plus or minus 500 feet.)


LEVEL SEVEN HINTS:



  • Be altitude aware! Your JM will not help with altitude clues, and may try to distract you. Do not let him!

  • Remember - the pull is lower than previous dives. You have more time between "no more manuevers" and the pull.

  • During the track, be sure to pick a point on the ground to track towards so you don't track in a circle.

  • Expect the unexpected. This is your final dive as a student, and your JM will be testing you to see if you can safely jump on your own.


REMEMBER THE MOST IMPORTANT PARTS OF ANY SKYDIVE:


PULL!

PULL AT THE RIGHT ALTITUDE!

PULL STABLE!

LAND SAFELY UNDER AN OPEN CANOPY!
